I am having problems with the optical out on the sky+ box as it constantly emits a signal, even when placing the box into standby mode. This then confuses my amplifier as it will not let me play any other digital source unless the cable is unplugged - far from ideal! I have changed the optical setting in menu from DD to normal, but this makes no difference. This is not a major issue until Sky start to transmit Dolby Digital soundtracks, but it will be a pain if I have to keep unplugging leads to switch between DVD and Sky. Anyone else come across this one yet? Ken p.s. I have e-mailed Sky to see whether a software fix is due. Any bets on what sort of reply I will get??
